This weekend I noticed my Barred Rock (about 18 months old) was limping. It has gotten worse and worse, and she can barely use her leg. I took a video of it, and I'll post it at the bottom. I examined her leg and foot and cannot find any obvious breaks or signs of infection anywhere. Any other ideas?


Thank you!

It does appear to be painful, I would confine her to a smaller area to see if resting it will improve it, it appears to be a problem in the foot, she could have a fracture in a toe. Let her rest, and see if it improves.
